Good morning traders!

The S&P 500 ($SPY) is trading above yesterday’s close. Let’s get into it…

Yesterday, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell spoke on the U.S. economy and inflation and said “My colleagues and I are acutely aware that high inflation is imposing significant hardship, straining budgets and shrinking what paychecks will buy. This is especially painful for those least able to meet the higher costs of essentials like food, housing, and transportation. Price stability is the responsibility of the Federal Reserve and serves as the bedrock of our economy. Without price stability, the economy does not work for anyone.” Powell stated with inflation that, “The truth is that the path ahead for inflation remains highly uncertain. For now, let’s put aside the forecasts and look instead to the macroeconomic conditions we think we need to see to bring inflation down to 2 percent over time.”

According to Powell, smaller interest rate rises are anticipated to occur as soon as December. “Monetary policy affects the economy and inflation with uncertain lags, and the full effects of our rapid tightening so far are yet to be felt. Thus, it makes sense to moderate the pace of our rate increases as we approach the level of restraint that will be sufficient to bring inflation down. The time for moderating the pace of rate increases may come as soon as the December meeting. We will stay the course until the job is done.”

In the news, Elon Musk met with Apple’s CEO Tim Cook, and resolved the misunderstanding about Twitter potentially being removed from the App Store. According to Elon, they had a good conversation in which Musk tweeted “Tim was clear that Apple never considered doing so.”
